Why organic cosmetics? I am asked this question very often. Simply put, there are 2 reasons: good green skincare products work better and are better for you. People are conditioned by massive amounts of hype from industry giants trying to convince them that their synthetic formulas will work wonders on their skin. Although small businesses that make pure, natural beauty products don’t have the money for the advertising bucks necessary to gain household recognition, the quality and performance of their products makes them worth investigating.
If you are looking for a healthy lifestyle , choosing organic cosmetics is a priority. The subject is very broad and it is impossible to cover all the points in a single article. In this one I will go over the basic benefits of choosing natural beauty products. We will continue in more detail in future articles.
When you choose organic cosmetics, you are choosing products whose ingredients work with the natural systems of your skin. By obtaining the proper nutrients, our skin has the ability to care for and repair itself . Our bodies use nutrients absorbed not only through food, but also through the skin. It is medically understood that what your skin absorbs enters your bloodstream and is transported throughout your body. Why are we so careful about what we eat and not what we put on our skin? You have probably thought about the benefits of a healthy diet. Makes you wonder what effects all the petroleum-based chemicals in the skin products you are using have.
Avoid chemicals and synthetics
Disease and morbidity rates continue to rise. There are more and more studies showing the connection between the disease and chemicals. We need to eliminate or reduce exposure to synthetics.
In most cases they are not necessary in skin care and in many cases synthetics are absolutely terrifying. These ingredients are often fast-acting and invasive. Sometimes they are causing damage that we cannot see and often this exposure shows up as skin irritation, chronic headaches, cancers, respiratory disabilities, hormonal disturbances, etc., etc., etc. The range of symptoms is too wide to list all, but you can see how it covers the minor symptoms up to the life-threatening consequences.
And for what?! you will ask yourself. I’ll tell you why, first and foremost: money, cheap ingredients are easy to manufacture and market. Plus, many commercial products will give you instant gratification with skincare results. Most of these products are designed to do a simple job to help you with an aesthetic purpose: sun spots disappear, spots disappear! Does it sound familiar to you? These are just a few of the promises that have been made, and believe me, they can keep. But too often there is a high price: suffocation of the skin, accelerated dehydration, photosensitivity.
It’s quite annoying that they do this to us, right? But it is a truth that we all know, even if unconsciously: there are rarely quick fixes in life, yet we can have everything we want. Fortunately for us, skin care is something we can control, although we really do narrow down the options and the cost of the products may be a little higher, but it is worth it for our health.
Compatible with all skin types
Natural cosmetics are perfect for all skin types. If you are a brunette or blonde, you will find natural cosmetics like foundation, eyeshadow, and lipstick that are appropriate for your skin tone. Women with oily or sensitive skin can also use them and without having to worry about worsening their skin condition.
Not tested on animals
Some cosmetics are tested on animals to ensure that they are safe and effective to use. However, natural cosmetics are not one of them. These natural beauty enhancers are tested by experts in laboratories using state-of-the-art equipment with no animals involved.
Helps reduce global warming
The petroleum-free ingredients; the extraction of these resources destroys ecosystems, pollutes the planet and increases the effects of climate change.
How we distinguish organic cosmetics
When we hear organic cosmetics, we must know what should be cosmetics made from ingredients derived from plants along with some other natural ingredients. These ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, GMOs, etc. and they often come with an organic certification, although the latter is a bit more complex than it sounds and I will discuss that in another article. The integrity of these unadulterated ingredients is best maintained with little or no additives. From here the best ingredients are chosen for the specific purpose and a natural preservation system is used for longevity.
I hope this was an enlightening introduction to why eco-friendly cosmetics are important. There are many benefits to using organic products , but most importantly, they are better for your health, and they work. And work in a way that lengthens our life.
